So I may have broken WordPress

Don’t know how, but something’s broken. Took forever to post Sunday’s post, had to do it on Monday after much gnashing of teeth and ripping of garments. And now comments are all borked up. I reply to comments 99% of the time…and just noticed that the “reply to” address is now wordpress and not the commenter’s email. So if you haven’t gotten a reply from me, know that I did reply, and it’s now floating around in the internets. In the internets, no one can hear you scream.


This means I will actually have to fix it. Fix something I did not break, do not know how to fix, and don’t want to fix. Because comments are crack to me. I live for comments. Otherwise, I’m just talking to myself, and I do enough of that in real life. Give me comments, and that’s one less bang of the head on the desk. Or something. And I won’t just be able to fix one little thing. I’ll end up with a whole freaking makeover…something I’ve wanted to do for awhile, but have been putting off. That’s what happened when I was over with Blogger. I just wanted to be able to reply to comments without having to jump through high flaming hoops, and ended up moving the whole shebang here.


So, leave me comments that I may or may not be able to reply to. Watch this space for more head banging and maybe, just maybe, a new look. (Crap!!!! Now I have to do it! Stupid comments getting all borked up!) Send me some sanity; we’re 4 1/2 weeks from summer vacation and we may very likely get hit with a heavy spring snowstorm on Friday.

Oh, and send me a goat. My damned sweet, loving husband has this superstitious Cubs flag thing going on, and he borked it up this week. I need a goat to try to counteract it.

And yes, borked is the word of the week. Pass it on.

    Sorry you’re having so much trouble. I certainly won’t take it personally if I don’t receive a reply 😉

    Here is a little comment for you since I know you love it.

    For what it is worth, I received a reply from a comment I left the other day so it isn’t THAT broken. maybe just acting broken?

    Good luck fixing. It is way over my head.

    I think you are my soulmate of the blogging world!! I too live for comments!! A lot of people that read my blog I actually know in person and they tell me they are reading and enjoying. But oh, it’s really those comments I live for.:-) You are by far my most diligent comment leaver-so thank you! Now that I know I am not the only one eagerly awaiting a comment I too shall try to be a good little comment leaver.
    I’ll have to give “borked” a try. Perhaps my sweet little 3 year old will pick that up instead and drop the other gems he has picked up lately.

    I’ve noticed that on my site, too! I tried replying to someone via e-mail, and I got a “donotreply@wordpress.com” address. I think they messed with the system.

    I am VERY slowly trying to move my blog to WP and I am very QUICKLY seeng that it is not as easy as Blogger. Kind of stinks. I want to be self hosted. I want to change my name, I want the best of both worlds (gag)

    I’m here! I’m commenting! I usually just come back and comment after people comment, right on the blog, but sometimes I email. I’m dreaming of the day when I have so many comments that I can’t keep them all straight. 😉
